1.) "Die Alone" by Ingrid Michaelson - Minako POV
I'm just a stranger, even to myself./A re-arranger of the proverbial bookshelf./Don't be a fool girl, tell him you love him./[...]/I never thought I could love anyone but myself./Now I know I can't love anyone but you./You make me think that maybe I won't die alone./Maybe I won't die alone.

2.) "Unconditionally" by Katy Perry - Minako POV to Shinjiro
I'll take your bad days with your good/Walk through this storm I would/I'd do it all because I love you,/[...]/There is no fear now/Let go and just be free/I will love you unconditionally/So open up your heart and just let it begin/[...]/Acceptance is the key to be/To be truly free/Will you do the same for me?

3.) "Days Go By" by The Offspring - Minako POV to Shinjiro
As we find a way the times they come and go/Look back in love/A new day rises above/With the wind it comes to carry you back home/All your anger, all your hurt/Doesn't matter in the end/Those days go by/And we all start again

4.) "Can't Help Falling in Love" (Cover) by Twenty Once Pilots - Shinjiro POV
Wise men say only fools rush in/But I can't help falling in love with you/Shall I stay, would it be a sin?/If I can't help falling in love with you

5.) "I Wouldn't Mind" by He is We - Minako POV
Forever is a long time/But I wouldn't mind spending it by your side/Carefully we'll place our destiny/You came and you took this heart, and set it free/Every word you write or sing is so warm to me, so warm to me/I’m torn, I’m torn to be right where you are/I’m not afraid, anymore/I’m not afraid

6.) "A Thousand Years" by Christina Perri - Minako POV to Shinjiro
Darling, don't be afraid, I have loved you for a thousand years/I'll love you for a thousand more/Time stands still/Beauty in all she is/I will be brave/I will not let anything, take away/What's standing in front of me/Every breath, every hour has come to this

7.) "Kiss Me" by Ed Sheeran - Shinjiro POV
Settle down with me/And I'll be your safety/You'll be my lady/I was made to keep your body warm/But I'm cold as the wind blows so hold me in your arms

8.) "Your Guardian Angel" by The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus - Shinjiro POV to Minako
Now that I'm strong I have figured out/How this world turns cold/And it breaks through my soul and I know/I'll find deep inside me/I can be the one/I will never let you fall/I'll stand up with you forever/I'll be there for you through it all/Even if saving you sends me to heaven/It's okay/It's okay

9.) "Just A Kiss" by Lady Antebellum - Both POVs
Lyin' here with you so close to me/It's hard to fight these feelings/When it feels so hard to breathe/Caught up in this moment/Caught up in your smile/I've never opened up to anyone/So hard to hold back/When I'm holding you in my arms/We don't need to rush this/

10.) "No Matter What" by Papa Roach - Shinjiro POV
You're everything I'm not, in my life/We're indestructible, we are untouchable
Nothing can take us down tonight/You are so beautiful/It should be criminal, that you could be mine/And we will make it out alive/I promise you this love will never die/No matter what/I got your back/I'll take a bullet for you if it comes to that

11.) "Guilt" by Hurts - Shinjiro POV
I must face up someday/You'll be better off on your own/So just let me go/Under the bridge/I'll carry this guilt no more/So under the waves/And out of your way I'll go/You won't cry for what you've lost at all/And someday, when you wake up happy/You will thank the Lord that I'm gone/So darling, be strong/I'm Under the bridge/I'll bear with this guilt forever more

12.) "Don't Cry" by Guns 'N Roses - Shinjiro POV to Minako
Talk to me softly/There's something in your eyes/Don't hang your head in sorrow/And please don't cry/[...]/there's a heaven above you baby/And don't you cry tonight/[...]/You gotta make it your own way/But you'll be alright now

13.) "Breathe (Until Tomorrow)" by Paramore - Minako POV
I climb I slip I fall/Reaching for your hands/But I lay here all alone/Sweating all your blood/If I could find out how/To make you listen now/Because I'm starving for you here/With my undying love/And I/I will/Breathe for love tomorrow/cause there's no hope for today

14.) "Can't Be Saved" by Senses Failed - Shinjiro POV
(This song isn't being used poetically, but literally.)
Follow your bliss/[...]/Why can't I just hold it true?/[...]/I'm stuck in a coma/Stuck in a never ending sleep/Someday I will wake up/and realize I made up everything

15.) "Broken" by Tracy Chapman - Minako POV
You can close your eyes/And see a picture perfect life/Inside of your mind/Dreaming only of the days ahead/Wanted and wished for more than now/Or the days behind/You waste your time/[...]/You can never think/You can't even stop yourself/Before the words have been spoken/And you've already said/You would give everything/[...]/The picture makes a promise/The flesh lets it be broken

16.) "Stop Crying Your Heart Out" by Oasis - Shinjiro POV
Hold up/Hold on/Don't be scared/You'll never change what's been and gone/May your smile/Shine on (shine on)/Don't be scared/Your destiny may keep you warm/'Cause all of the stars/Are fading away/Just try not to worry/You'll see them someday/Take what you need/And be on your way/And stop crying your heart out/Why're you scared? (I'm not scared)/You'll never change/What's been and gone

17.) "What if the World Goes Black" (Cover) by Sonnet Simmons - Minako POV
what if the world goes black/[...]/black is all I see in the middle of this eternal life/ and it's hard to breathe/as I’m questioning anything I've ever been/all the lies/all the stories/can I let go/if I let go/what will the world be like if I give up/what if I break down every wall I've built

18.) "A Bird's Song" by Ingrid Michaelson - Minako POV
I always seem to forget/How fragile are the very strong/I'm sorry I can't steal you/I'm sorry I can't stay/So I put Band-Aids on your knees/And watch you fly away/I'm sending you away tonight/I'll put you on a bird's strong wing/I'm saving you the best way I know how/I hope again one day to hear you sing

19.) "The Man Who Can't be Moved" by The Script - Shinjiro POV
Going back to the corner where I first saw you/Gonna camp in my sleeping bag I'm not gonna move/Got some words on cardboard got your picture in my hand/Saying if you see this girl can you tell her where I am/Some try to hand me money they don't understand/I'm not, broke I'm just a broken hearted man/I know it makes no sense/but what else can I do/How can I move on when I'm still in love with you/[...]/I'm the man who can't be moved

20.) "Come Home to Me" by Ernie Halter - Shinjiro POV
Come home to me/Back into my arms/home where you belong/come home to me/come home to me/if home is where you are/then home is way too far away/the TV light of blue and white/I just can't fall asleep/and I move over to a space/where you should be/even halfway seems so far

21.) "Suddenly Everything Has Changed" (Cover) by The Postal Service - Both POV
And it goes fast/You think of the past/Suddenly everything has changed
